Unlocking The Body Massage Therapy, a medical day spa in Puyallup, Washington, has announced the medical spa packages that they are offering in 2021. These include a broad range of massage, cupping, chakra balancing, ashiatsu, flotation therapy, kenisio taping, craniosacral therapy, guasha therapy, and more. They also offer a wellness massage special and flotation therapy special for new clients. Also available are gift certificates for customers to be able to show that they care for that special someone. These gift certificates are for massage sessions lasting for 60, 90, or 120 minutes.
Medical massage therapy is one of the primary services offered at Unlocking The Body Massage Therapy, with Jennifer Bull as one of the licensed massage therapists. She has been in this particular field since 1999 and she is keen on troubleshooting complex cases where people have shown little progress with other practitioners or other modalities.
Medical massage is a treatment that is results oriented and can be focused on certain conditions that have been diagnosed by a naturopath, chiropractor, or physician and massage therapy has been prescribed. The massage therapist can use a number of modalities or procedures but medical massage will be focused only on those body parts that are connected to the prescription or diagnosis.
Medical massage can provide several benefits, including: deactivation of myofascial trigger points; relief for nerve compression or entrapment; the relaxation of tight and sore muscles that can lead to ischemia; improvement of circulation and relief for stress; restoration of strength and suppleness of the muscles; reduction of pain and inflammation; ability to help release toxins, such as lactic acid; and release of tension or muscles in spasm.
Another key service offered at Unlocking The Body Massage Therapy is sensory deprivation or flotation therapy. This is done in an enclosed float pool measuring 6 feet by 9 feet with 9-foot ceilings. This float pool provides sufficient space, which is a comfortable alternative to the smaller pod enclosures provided in other facilities. Flotation therapy offers a number of benefits, such as: promotion of well-being; reduction of the “fight or flight” response; pain relief; reduction of inflammation or tension; and medication with little effort.
Also provided is the ashiatsu massage, which uses the deep feet bar therapy method. The massage provides broad, smooth, deep strokes with warm massage oil and proper draping. The technique makes use of the broad surface of the foot and gravity and can accomplish much more compared to the conventional method of massaging by hands.
They can also provide craniosacral therapy, which was developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger in 1970, having observed the rhythmic movement of the craniosacral system. Each day, the body experiences stresses and strains, which result into the tightening and distortion of the craniosacral system. Such distortions eventually result into the formation of tension around the brain and spinal cord, acting as a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system and other systems of the body that interact with it. Craniosacral therapy works by normalizing the environment surrounding the brain and spinal cord to boost the body’s capability to self-correct. As such, craniosacral therapy may alleviate a broad range of dysfunctions, from chronic pain and sports injuries to stroke and neurological damage.
Gua sha or skin scraping is thought to have started in the Paleolithic Age and it has been an integral component of traditional Chinese medicine as a way to prevent or treat illnesses in various Asian cultures. Scraping is done over clothing before or after bathing with lotion or oil as a way to stimulate blood circulation and prevent illnesses. By boosting blood flow to an area of the body that is irritated, in pain, or restricted, the healing process can be helped by enabling blood and nutrients to reach the interstitial space where pain is felt. Scraping may also help in getting rid of toxins that may have been stuck in the tissue.
